Grub Menu and Deleting Ubuntu
Well, I have two instances of Ubuntu installed on my computer. The second is installed on the secondary hard drive and want to take it off. If I were to do so, would grub mess up at all? And I also how several choices in the grub menu with recovery and stuff. How would I delete the extra things in the grub menu?

To answer your second question, use nano to edit menu.lst in the /boot/grub directory.
You should be able to mkfs the secondary hard drive and still be able to boot into the primary hard drive.

can you post /boot/grub/menu.lst here so i can think about it.
it would be enough to delete your second distro's (which had gone away) things in menu.lst and run grub-install..

no need to re-install grub. just delete all entries in /boot/grub/menu.lst that are referring to second disk's Ubuntu.
